Me and my son went out for drive this Saturday after getting about 8 inches of snow. By the time we got out most of the roads were already plowed but the view was still nice. On this trip I hit 4000 miles.
I have put more miles on this vehicle in 1 month than I have on any vehicle in the past. I did take it on a 2000 mile round trip shortly after getting it (like 3 days after getting it) so that attributed to many of the miles. I also pulled a 6x12 enclosed trailer 120 miles at speeds of 80mph so I got a good feel for the pulling characteristics.
Highway travel is amazing. Quiet, smooth, and the all th electronics are nice. Had 2 adults, 1 child, 3 golden retrievers and fully loaded luggage rack for our 1st trip. In sub-freezing temperatures on 87 octance I got 16.5mpg @80mph, I didn't think to shabby.
On the open highway empty @ 80mph I have achieved 19.1 mpg, very good IMO for such a heavy vechile and large displacement motor.
The power of the Hemi puts a smile on my face. By far not fast in respect to vehicles I have had but does what it needs to well.
In town the only complaint I have is the shorter wheel base I feel more imperfections in the road (coming from long wheel based trucks or really tall side walls on my Raptor). I love that it blends in (past vehicles have stuck out for one reason or another), kind of weird I know, but as I get older I just like to be left alone and not peppered with questions everytime I pull in somewhere.
Handles snow amazingly. Could use some snow tires for more extreme snow cases as braking and turning can get hairy but for what the tires are the Jeep does amazing.
Here is a picture of where I was at when it turned 4000 miles, perfect IMO
So far I am very happy with this purchase.
